As the Indian rupee crashed to an all-time low of 70.09 against US dollar on Tuesday, the Congress took to Twitter and slammed the Narendra Modi government. Taking a jibe at the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) regime at the Centre, the Congress said, "Modiji finally managed to do something that we couldn't do in 70 years." Along with the tweet, the opposition has also shared a screenshot of the exchange value, moments after it shook the entire share-market on Tuesday.

The tweet, which is being shared some three hours ago, has already garnered 2.1 likes and collected over 1,000 retweets. The comment-section, on the other hand, has been flooded with some funny remarks since being posted.
